    Alumna

    I was skeptical when I enrolled in General Assembly's UX Design Bootcamp. It's an expensive, for-profit, unaccredited educational institution. Those characteristics go against everything I'd been told to look for in an educational pursuit. 

    As a graduate, I cannot say enough good things about the program, and I am jealous of the cohort currently learning with our phenomenal instructors. The instructors are, without a doubt, the backbone of the course. Our Denver instructors were pa...

    GA UXDI London - Feedback

    Great course. Got a paid internship / junior role within 2 months of finishing the course with a brilliant agency. The UXDI content is diverse and interesting, teaching staff are very engaged and just good all round people.

    I now work in an environment I love with the best people I've ever worked with. Very expensive course but definitely worth it to leave behind a career that leaves you feeling meh.

    The careers ('outcomes') team are absolutely brilliant. Just do what they ...

    GA UXD Feedback

    GA in UXD provides me in-depth learning and best practices in UXD industry particular in design thinking and design process.  My practitioner, Alvin Loh is helpful and answer all our questions as details as possible. As of now, I can be very sure I'm better prepared when I'm conducting UX process or workshop.

    The best choice for learning web dev

    I want to start by saying I am only 18. Most of the people I see attend this are in their 20s but don't feel like being younger than everyone will stop you if you are considering coming to GA after high school. 

    The course is fast paced and you have to put in the time and effort if you want to succeed. You may not have a whole lot of time during the weeks for the duration of the course so it's really a committment. I think the fast paced is perfect for learning, especially for web ...

    Amazing Course

    I started my career in design being an engineer. I always lack details on UX terms and process. I compared many courses available online and found some great feedback online. The syllabus was exactly what I wanted to learn. I decided to go ahead with this. It was one of the best decision I made to opt for this course. I have learned the whole UX process. This gonna help me in my career for sure.

    Awesome Part-Time UX Course!!

    General Assembly is a great school for expanding your skillset. I was sponsored by my work to take the part-time UX course. I apply things I learned in my UX course at work and in life daily. Taking this course has truly influenced the way I think about design and approach problems. The classes are always interesting. I was never bored in class and I always felt that the material was relevant.

    There were two main negatives to taking the part-time course. The first is that you don't...

    The quality of the curriculum, instructors, job support, and facilities we're great. The instructors were great as well. Only issue I would have is that the ciriculum was TOO fast paced for me personally. Would have loved to seen a slower paced ciriculum offered.

    So you’re thinking about taking the Front-End Web Development at General Assembly?

    This was a blog post I wrote in 2015 about my experience at GA that I still this is relevant.

    BEST SCHOOL EVER!!

    I can say without a doubt that going to  General Assembly is the best thing I have done in life thus far. I went to multiple different open houses for coding boot camps and GA was the one that stuck out to me because of how open and friendly the staff was. I felt like home. My 12 week during the WDI course was like nothing I have taken before. It was rigorous but very rewarding. I was skeptical of the idea that I could learn everything to become a proficient web developer in 12 weeks and b...
